Friday's Weekly Challenge from Bloggers Challenge

Happy Friday! I am always thrilled when Friday comes and I have my project completed!!! I completed this card early this week! The challenge from Bloggers Challenge this week was a color challenge. The colors we had to use for this challenge where red, teal and curry! This was very difficult for me. I think color and sketch challenges are the most difficult for me! I find these challenges limit my creativity and they make me work so much harder then a theme type of challenge. Anyway, I started out with three different pieces of colorstock... the card style was looking southwest and I thought that may be the way! Then I slept on it and woke to with an idea....like a bell going off!! It was more like a creative chime! Then I dug through my papers and came up with this beautiful black and white floral paper....grabbed some copics and something wonderful came together! I hope you enjoy the card! Please, take a minute and check out all the awesome projects that the other bloggers from Bloggers Challenge have created for this challenge!
